Get popcorn ready, or is it going to be a yawn fest (probably)?

Let Nadler car crash conspiracy theories roll in.

BTW, I'm curious what this fat fuck has to say.

Overcaffeneinated Gym Jordan repeats every line twice. Rhetoric 101, and blathering about Obama. Obama, Obama, Obama. Guess who isn't president or AG, for that matter?

always deliberately misleading capo Jordan played one of those stupid videos team Trump likes to put up of media saying things such as 'protests mostly peaceful' mashing up with only the violent actions parts as if that makes the media liars (w/ Jordan's video extra misleading)

Jake Tapper exposes the total misleading bullshit well:

Jordan is such a disgrace, like so many Trumpers

"This is a hearing; I thought I was the one who was supposed to be heard"

That kinda says it all. Barr basically sat there and listened to a bunch of political speeches.

"i would've liked a crack at him :p"

We had enough delusional nutbags pretending to ask questions didn't need another tumbleweed. What goes on in your head really isn't pertinent to goings on in the real world.

pretty standard at these things

Comey was able to handle it professionally, unlike Barr... plus Comey was taking firing from both sides no ally every other questioner

hail, Comey!

I didn't catch the entire thing but what is this ally every other questioner thing you speak of? The last five were very hostile and all Democrats.

The Democrats did have an effective strategy though. They wouldn't give Barr a chance to respond during their time so Republicans would have to give him some of their time to reply to the complete bullshit the Democrats were spouting off about.
Any time they set up a question with this is a yes or no question you know it is complete bullshit and worded in a way that both yes and no will provide a gotcha moment.
Was fucking embarrassing to see members of congress behave in such a manner.

watch Ratcliffe question Mueller, see how much time he gives Mueller to answer


it's normally alternating D/R questioning... D's had some extra at end only as they have majority in the House

plus both capos Jordan & Gaetz are on that committee sadly... so some extreme allies

"watch Ratcliffe question Mueller, see how much time he gives Mueller to answer"

It is a common problem but today went to a whole new level (election year and all maybe) with the hyperbole and feigned outrage.

I've thought for a long time the person testifying should get the last 1/3 of each time allotment a committee member gets to respond uninterrupted. Both parties are really bad about just speaking to hear themselves speak or playing to the camera to get the one minute soundbite of the day so we learn nothing. Today was extremely bad.
